NEW RESTO ALERT: 49B Heirloom Kitchen

I've been raving about this lengua from another resto but 49B Heirloom Kitchen's lengua made me forget about all the other lenguas I've tasted. Nothing comes close to this lengua ... and mashed potato instead of rice? Ang sarap!

The lengua (ox tongue) was so tender you need not chew anymore. The downside- it will make you crave for rice *sigh*


49B Heirloom Kitchen is a relatively new restaurant along Scout Tobias. And most of the dishes that they serve are "heirloom" recipes, hence, the name of the restaurant. The place used to be an old apartment unit which they converted into a restaurant. I love the homey interiors because its very welcoming.



Paella. Another classic favorite that's bursting with flavor and intoxicating aroma. I miss rice!


Squash Flower Fritters. I thought this is the usual "kalabasa" flower fritters but was pleasantly surprised when it was oozing with cheese when I bit into it. It would have been nice if the marinara dip is a bit spicier.


Sinigang na Lechon. A fusion of two favorites- sinigang and lechon. I love how the salty lechon blends perfectly with the hot and sour sinigang. Serving is good for 2-3 pax.


Bacalao, or salted cod fish.


Bananas with ice cream. A classier version of turon sans the oily wrapper. Must-try dessert at 49B Heirloom Kitchen. No sharing!


So I thought I'm in love with the banana and ice cream but they serve us these cookies that came straight out of the oven. Ordering these cookies takes about 15 minutes since they serve it newly baked. Perfect with a glass of milk. Actually, you can order milk at 49B Heirloom Kitchen because I saw it listed on the menu. Perfect!

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
